Alfred Brendel

(to my mind, a hero of modesty)
loves the aphorisms of
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-99).
Here is an example:

'Every man has his moral backside 
which he doesn't reveal unless he has to,
and keeps covered as long as possible 
with the trousers of respectability.

There are those, of course, who like to present
their backsides to all-comers.
